Super Eagles’ goalkeeper, Carl Ikeme, has beaten cancer, a disease which had kept him bedridden for a long time.
Ikeme shared the news on his Twitter handle, writing; “After a year of intense chemotherapy I would like to share that I am in complete REMISSION.”
He added, “I still have hurdles to pass to be cured, but hopefully I can move on with some normality! I would like to thank everyone for there support over the past year. Thank you #Grateful”
Ikeme had been battling leukaemia.
The 32-year-old Wolverhampton Wanderers keeper was the national team’s first-choice and has been named as an unregistered ’24th member’ of the Nigeria World Cup squad after he was unable to be chosen because of his cancer treatment.
Ahead of the Group D game on Friday, Iceland players sent their best wishes to Ikeme, with Ikeme’s name imprinted on the number 1 jersey of Iceland.
Nigeria won the game, 2:0, thanks to Ahmed Musa, who scored both goals.
